texas, ms. jackson lee, for five minutes. ms. jackson lee: i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. ms. jackson lee: mr. speaker, i have always had such great respect for this distinguished body. the holder and interpreter of democracy. the institution that proudly protects the constitution that was written by those who saw in this land this bright and shining sun, from sea to shining sea, enormous opportunity for freedom. so many people came to this nation and they came in many different ways. we don't carry the way we came into the future as much as the fact that we are grateful of the opportunity that this nation has given us. the nation has been able to turn the tide on embracing democracy in its fullest because of the constitution and the laws because we adhere to the three branches of government. so although my ancestors came to this nation in bondage and lasted for hundreds of years, slavery that has its remnants continuously as we move throughout society. there are now laws that can ensure no matter how you came to this country, n

bradley cooper is with us. also, reverend jesse jackson on his organization's meetings this week on wall street. we'll also be asking him about the continuing murders in chicago. his hometown. they do not stop. also, member of the senate armed services committee, senator richard blumenthal. he had a front-row seat at whatever that was yesterday we were just looking at. we'll talk to him about chuck hagel and whether he's closer or further away from supporting him. also, "the washington post's" bob woodward will be here. and up next, cory booker is likely to be eyeing a run for senator, but frank lautenberg, man, he's going after booker. >> interesting. >> pretty tough. we'll be talking about that, too. >>> first, let's go right now to bill karins. >> oh, lord. >> he's got the weather. >> ratings are going to plummet. bill. >> washington, d.c., overnight was expecting some snow showers and some flurries. oops. it's snowing. already an inch or two on the ground in some areas of maryland. and it's snowing hard from around annapolis across the chesapeake, and as you go into maryland and now

." ♪ [music break] >> mahalia jackson singing to check how i got over" at the 1963 march on washington. that is a clip from the 1970 documentary, "king: a filmed record...from montgomery to memphis." we return to the film with ruby dee reading the poem "frederick douglass." then we arrived at the march on washington august 28, 1963 and hear first from the activist their breast and then a philip randolph from one of the organizers of the march. he introduces martin luther king, jr.. >>when it is finally ours, this freedom, this liberty, this beautiful and terrible thing, needful to man as air, usable as earth; when it belongs at last to all, when it is truly instinct, brain matter, diastole, systole, reflex action; when it is finally won; when it is more than the gaudy mumbo jumbo of politicians: this man, this douglass, this former slave, this negro beaten to his knees, exiled, visioning a world where none is lonely, none hunted, alien, this man, superb in love and logic, this man shall be remembered. oh, not with statues' rhetoric, not with legends and poems and wreaths of bronze alon
the headlines, way inside. (vo) from the underworld, to the world of privilege. >> everyone in michael jackson's life was out to use him. (vo) no one brings you more documentaries that are real, gripping, current. >> this is "the bill press show." >> 25 minutes after the hour. should the united states be conducting drone warfare around the world and should the united states be killing american citizens whom they suspect of being involved in a terrorist organization on foreign soil without any trial, would youithout any due process, with the president playing judge jury, judge, and executioner. it's hard to get numbers on how many people have been killed. my column last may on this issue, i quoted in my column the new america foundation survey that are looking at pakistan between 1785, 1,785 and 2,771 individuals have been killed in pakistan by remote controlled drones, of whom 1, -- 1,492 and 2,300 were militants. in other words, the non-militant or civilian deaths or collateral deaths were 17%. >> that's pretty high. 17% collateral including 174 children. what do y
chairman, former governor of mississippi. he is in jackson this morning and cory booker, of course, is the mayor of newark, and he is in our new york studio. governor barbour president me just start with you and i want to go back to the top. he says he hopes the sequester the draconian cuts don't go into effect. but from where i sit it looks to me like this is all going to happen because congress and the white house just can't figure out hue not to let it happen. what's your take? >> first of all, it was the president's idea when the sequester was proposalsed to be put into law a couple of years ago and there are plenty of reasons for to not want it to go into effect, particularly the defense spending. what the democrats want is another excuse to raise taxes. their answer soevery question is raise taxes. they apparently think what's wrong with the company and president obama mrs. pelosi, steny hoyer and top harkin, all prominent democrats have all said "we don't have a spending problem in this country." they think what's wrong with our country is we tax too little. well most ameri
gases and emissions are causing global warming, that's fine. you can believe it. lisa jackson, director of the epa, in fact, obama's director made this statement in response, live on tv, to my question. if we pass this cap-and-trade, it's going to cost between $30,400,000,000,000 a year, largest tax increase in history this country. is this going to reduce co2 emissions? she said that while. the reason is the problem is that here. it's in china, india, mexico, other countries. those three have problems to manufacturing base moving overseas because they have to go where there is energy and if we curtail or energy over here but that tax won't reduce emissions come is still manufacturing to go someplace. >> host: senator inhofe was the ranking member on the environment and public works committee and on the 113, besides the top republican on the senate armed services committee. bobby in birmingham, alabama, go ahead. >> caller: morning. how you doing, sir? i listen to the president last night. with all the things in north korea and other places, are we in a position right now to have a weak
politics & prose bookstore in washington, d.c. >> after president-elect andrew jackson's wife died in the simpler 1840, her knees assumed the role of first lady. >> emily was perfect. for all the negatives washington had to say about andrew jackson, they loved emily. she sort of covered everything. the women all liked her, and as it was to happen, the women's opinions that meant more than people thought in washington, that she, emily, became his acting first lady. she entertained beautifully. she was polished. some people thought oh, she's rude and rustic from the country. she knew exactly how to do things. >> emily donelson, one of the women who served as first lady and c-span's new series, examined the public and private lives in a first of its kind project for television. season one begins this monday, presidents' day, at 9 p.m. eastern and pacific on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. >> president obama has signed an executive order establishing voluntary cybersecurity standards that would improve information sharing and bolster collaborative efforts among federal agencies an
. but if they can't stop the abuse they need to have a place to go. host: jackson from birmingham, alabama. caller: good morning. this should definitely not be open for discussion. i have a sister who has been through domestic violence. i don't know where these republicans come from. these are the worst law makers that i have ever seen in my entire life. we all need to vote in 2014 just like the democrats came out we need to be strong so we can get some of these republicans out of office. host: thanks for the call. guest: certainly the caller is right that this should not be up for discussion. obviously we have to discuss as we pass laws. but the issue of violence against women is one that's serious. and as he said, if you have a relative, a friend who has been a victim of domestic violence, then you know how important it is to have services available and how important it is to have a responsive law enforcement that knows how to deal with these cases, how do identify them. and for instance, the stalking data base really critical to dealing with that. very, very frightening and important. host: cou
to death. senior national correspondent john roberts live in jackson, georgia, with more. john? >> reporter: good afternoon to you. certainly, the crimes were heinous, he shot his girlfriend 11 times to kill her and then in 1990 bludgeoned that former inmate to death with a board studded with nails. his attorneys argued that he was suffering from mental retardation and should not receive the death penalty. three doctors who were hired by the state disagreed with that saying he was not mentally retarded and during their interviews they thought perhaps he was even faking it. since then, though, those same three doctors have said they were wrong. one of them in an affidavit saying: my judgment that mr. hill did not meet the criteria for mild mental retardation was in error, going on to say that hill has an iq of about 70. back in 2002 the superior court ruled that it was a violation of the eighth amendment, unconstitutional, to put a mentally retarded person to death, and since then many people have come to hill's defense, including the family of his victim that he killed back in 1990, and for
's pining for the carter days. and certainly i mean he didn't control his own party. he had scoop jackson, democrats, hawks, abandoned carter and ted kennedy liberals abandoning him. what we can do is start looking at what it was like in his one term. just like we'll have a revision with president 41. carter did some great things in alaska and our national parks service. carter doubled the size of the national parks. and he saved all these great wilderness areas. well, it may not seem that big to you now. about 50 years from now when the rain forests are dead and so much of the world has been in ruin, saving all these bits of wild america will look like a greater achievement. only theodore roosevelt and fdr was a better conservation president than jimmy carter. >> how much would pop culture have an impact on some revisionism as far as jimmy carter is concerned? for example, the film argo? >> i think it's helpful because it's put -- it shows that film. i think the carter administration was trying desperately to get rid of those hostages. they were always between a rock and a hard place. wh
's are the hardest. or the os are the hardest. >> that's fascinating. i sat down with hugh jackson a while back and i asked him 'cause he goes from australian to american all the time. what is the secret sentence that they uses to jump from accent to accent. it's mind blowing. check this out. >> stole it from johnny depp. i heard him do an interview that he has a sentence he will say that contains every vowel or con son ant change. silly little thing. >> i gave the movie a 3 1/2 out of 5. check it out. if you're a teen-ager, i think it's really for that audience. >> steve: lightning round. two more movies. tell us how you grade them. >> "bull to the head," new movie with stallone. this is a film that i feel like does a great job with the action, but look at the title. the title does not help hollywood and movie violence. it's gotten more and more over the past couple decades. look back at the original rambo in the '80s. one death in that movie. then fast forward to 2008 rambo, 236 deaths in that film. i give this movie a 2 1/2 out of 5. it's a good action movie, has a good audience, but worth the re
're going to see him about 45 minutes from now. if you have phil jackson's number and you can scramble him to florida, she needs help. >>gretchen: dramatic video released of that hot air balloon crashing in egypt after cashing fire. you can -- catching fire. the crash leaving at least 19 tourists dead. two people lucky to be alive after surviving that plunge. foul play ruled out. the crash is expected to push egypt's tourism into even deeper recession. >>> two california police officers dead after being gunned down while following up on an arrest. cops say the suspect shot him as they approached his home. after a short search, gunfire broke out and the suspect was shot and killed. the officers had 38 years of experience between them. >>> last night a bus carrying the university of maine women's basketball team crashed off the highway. it is believed the driver had some kind of medical issue while he was driving. he is in serious condition. students and coaches walked away with minor injuries. >> a lot of traffic. >>gretchen: nascar fans injured in a fiery wreck now considering a lawsuit. a
at the folks who are leaving his administration, the e.p.a.'s director, lisa jackson, she said the e.p.a.'s role is interestingly -- quote -- "to level the playing field against fossil fuels." secretary chu who is leaving the administration, said he must -- quote -- "boost the price of gasoline to the levels in europe." and secretary salazar who is leaving continues to talk about the fact that the energy strategy showed good results but they have restricted access to federal offshore and onshore oil and gas resources through moratoriums, through blocking permits, through leasing plans, they denied americans billions in public revenue and thousands of jobs. so i stand here saying that the keystone x.l. pipeline is a perfect example of the obama administration's pattern of delaying good projects by requiring excessive red tape. so i come here with you, the senator from north dakota and the senator from alaska, and look to you, the senator from north dakota, and thank you for your leadership, for your determination forks your, for yr fortitude, for you fighting to make sure that we as a
that goes to so many things to the economy of course is a jackson the cost of medicine and it's a detriment to many of our constituents, so i just -- would you give me something back on that to let me know how deep he went into it? one of the things i think the chairman was saying making a part of our inquiry this session the next two years is looking not only at the fda piece of this but looking at this whole thing of the grey market. so i would like to sit down with you if you haven't delved into this and see where, you know, what we might be able to do it together to try to get to the bottom of that because it is a very, very serious problem. a lot of americans do not even know about it. but it's very serious. i want to very briefly go to this whole issue of climate change. the federal guard or the government has a number of efforts under way to decrease domestic greenhouse gas emissions. the success of the gas emission reduction efforts to pay is in large part on the international efforts. however, limiting the fiscal exposure to climate change risks will present a challenge the matter
